      Pros

      - If you want a quick PhD from english speaking country, AUT is the best option. I finish PhD in 2.5 year.

      Cons

      - Not much pressure. You will end up PhD with fewer publications. _ Funding not good enough.

      Pros

      Professional Development is available if you have the time.

      Cons

      You will be seen as an employee number rather than a person. Management don't listen to staff, heavy work loads and there's usually a lot of lack of communication and planning. Work place bullying that's usually swept under the rug by HR. To get ahead at AUT you will have to give up your work life balance and your mental health.
